TASK

ASK_TASKTASK is Knowsley’s Trader Approved Scheme for older people and vulnerable residents in Knowsley.

It’s a directory of local traders who have been vetted through the Office of Fair Trading by KMBC’s Trading Standards Department.

First established in July 2003 by KPAIS the aim of TASK is to reduce the number of rogue traders preying on older and vulnerable people in Knowsley and to give local residents more confidence and assurance when using traders.

How does TASK service work?

You have to be an older person or a vulnerable resident in Knowsley to access the free TASK service.

1. We make a note of your contact details and the work or service you are requesting trader details for.

2. We search our database of local suppliers and give you 3 names and contact details of appropriate traders – this is to ensure the choice of trader is yours.

3. After the work is complete we ask you to fill out a feedback form to report back on the chosen trader you have used.

This safe, innovative approach ensures that local TASK traders are regularly monitored by residents that use their services.

If you are eligible to use this free service contact TASK on 0151 546 6680.
